    Default Heidi Braid

    I am wearing Heidi Braids to work today. I thought I did a really nice job of braidling and putting up. Of course when I snapped a few pics this am (will post after d/l from iPhone) I noticed all the pins! I am getting a few strange looks and comments. I walked in to a crowded Quiznos (sandwhich shop for those that don't have them in your area) and really got some looks. Ah being in the land of the corporate bob and must cover gray! I'm undecided if a comfortably day look, pins are slip sliding a bit and I'm starting to fray around the edges. But for me it's a nice change from mean bun lady!
    Happy Friday.

    oooo... can't wait to see them. I wear all kinds of braids to work. I did get a lot of comments and wierd looks at first, and sometimes I still do. I just can't wear my hair the same way everyday, coated with goop and fried like everyone else. I try to use as few pins as possible, but that requires practice and hair that cooperates. Ha!

    I'm also wearing Heidi braids today! It's raining here in Chicago, and the braids are great for keeping my curly, frizzy hair in check. Also, the back is flat, which makes it easy to wear a hood! Here are the pics:

    Loved it short, loving it long, looking forward to longer.

    Thanks! They kind of make my head look enlarged, because they are chunky braids, but this hairstyle is so comfortable and secure, I don't really care... haha

    I have a hard time getting Heidi braids to stay put. It's a little easier if I do it with damp hair and gel. Ooooh; my hair is damp right now, I should. (but won't)

    I use Good Hair Days pins and those suckers don't go anywhere. My hairs are all friends, though, and tend to kind of stick together. I think it's part of the nature of curly hair.

    Pics or it didn't happen, atlantaz3! Thanks, I've been feeling in a style rut, and this is one I've always liked. So I tried it. First attempt, final product. Definitely need some practice, but I like it. I'll try again tomorrow. tcheney91, love the way your color stripes through the braid.

    Speaking as someone named Heidi, may I just hijack this for a moment to say it's a privilege to share a name with such a cute, classic style!
